He was awarded the silver despite finishing fourth, after Martina Churandy and Wallace Spearmon who finished second and third respectively was disqualified.

The disqualified sprinters, Martina Churandy and Wallace Spearmon, was said to have run out of their lane by the officials.

As a sporting gesture, Shawn Crawford the former 2004 Olympic gold medalist in the 200m, left his 200m silver medal to Martina Churandy’s hotel at a meet not long after the Olympics.
